Shes great, i saw her in an 8 diva tag at a house show recently and appart from Paige she got the biggest reaction. She has blossomed so much and if she keeps the drive and determination she will go far.
I wasn't joking when I said I would have put the NXT Women's Title on her by having her go over Bayley. Wrestling is an emotional journey. People ing hate Eva. What a moment it would have been to see Full Sail cry for 15 minutes while Nia and Eva celebrated in the ring.
I like 5 star matches too, but that's not what Wrestling needs to be all the time. When someone is drawing that kind of emotional response from the audience, you should have an obligation to manipulate them because of it. That's why nobody gets booed anymore besides the Miz.
I expect very little from Eva. She just needs to be passable and for the internet to keep being the internet. I wish they would have made her heel Seth Rollins' valet. I think there is still a huge opportunity there for her as a valet but having her work NXT isn't going to hurt her.
With the Bellas essentially moving on from the ring, at least in large part, there is a huge opportunity for Eva. I think that's always been the plan for her and I think she'll continue to do her best to work towards and fill that spot.
it would have been a hell of a story that i would have liked to see
most of those full sail fans would not cry tho
They just give her heat but after the shows they are the same fans saying how much better she is doing and they love her then get pics and autos and stand there talking to her for half an hour while she signs autos
You live here (Florida) im sure you have been to nxt shows and seen it
100%. I saw the same with her husband once too. It was like a line of 20 people standing to take a picture with him any time a match wasn't happening. That was proof to me that Total Divas was really resonating with the fanbase. I feel like that's the mentality though. It's like "we hate you wrestler ____________, but please take a picture of me for instagram?!" haha. That's just the world we live in. At the time I wanted to see this happen though, so like end of 15 or very early 16, Full Sail wasn't on the "she's improved" train. So they would have gone nuts. That was the height of Bayley's popularity too. So it would have worked double.
I genuinely like Eva. It started because I find her incredibly sexy, but secondarily, and more importantly now, because I love how the audience reacts to her. I didn't always appreciate Vickie Guerrero heat, but now that I understand it, I feel when someone comes along and has it, and looks the way Eva does, and can represent your company the way Eva can, you latch onto it. That's why I foresee her in that female Roman Reigns/Nikki Bella role for WWE.
